Created Healthy Kids in Action to provided a free exercise program for the kids in my community.

Project: I created Healthy Kids in Action because I wanted to provided a free exercise program for the kids in my community. I have a passion for exercise-which was straightened after I overcame an eating disorder, and I want to make sure kids learn how to exercise properly. Growing up my parents could not afford exercise programs for me and my summers were spent at home. With Healthy Kid in Action, I hope to get kids active during the summer, so they can not only exercise, and also gain social and leadership skills.
